about me

More than 23 years ago I started Green Chair Marketing Group more by accident than intention. I worked with a non-profit for 16 years before that and fully intended on getting a regular job. And maybe do a little web design on the side.  

I worked for an entrepreneur for a bit before he ran out of time and money on the project he hired me for. I was doing web design for a couple computer networking companies, and they kept me busy with their customers (thank you Tim Taylor and Marc Lintz).

In 2002 we decided to move to Denver to be closer to my wife’s family. A few years later took a job with a digital marketing agency to manage their paid search department to the tune of $250K per month. But I quit in less than a year.

For the next decade my agency grew, and I became very involved with the Denver digital marketing community. But then things started slowing down.

I supplemented my income by getting involved with local service businesses like concrete, painting, woodworking, and remodeling. I was managing projects, doing sales, answering phone calls, and hauling junk to the landfill in my pickup.

I’ve continued doing woodworking on the side. And I’ve combined my two loves by helping folks in the wood industry with their web marketing. I’ve built about a dozen websites, audited a dozen more sites to help my client be more effective, and I do presentations on web marketing every  week.

I’ve offered many different services over the years but am narrowing my services. I’m concentrating on web design, branding, messaging, and local SEO setup. I’m not doing day-to-day SEO, Google Ads management, or overseeing social media, but I have great strategic partners who can help with that.

Let me know how I can help you. Just give me a call or fill out a form on my contact page.
